Certificate in Nuclear Engineering Materials

The goal of this certificate is to combine a comprehensive set of course curricula that will provide students with an understanding of the challenges and remedial measures associated with materials in nuclear energy systems. It includes courses in radiation damage, nuclear fuel performance, corrosion, and Joining/Welding. A laboratory course will provide hands-on experimental analysis in the areas of corrosion, welding, radiation damage, and non-destructive evaluation.

Students must complete the certificate declaration form. Contact Professor Douglass Henderson. Department of Engineering Physics, 151 Engineering Research Building, for further information.

Students learn the challenges and remedial measures associated with materials in nuclear energy system and conduct experimental analysis in corrosion, welding, radiation damage, and nondesctructive evaluation.
